DENVER — Economists are giving lawmakers the latest picture of how Colorado's economy is performing as they start to finalize next year's budget.

Taxes from the state's new recreational marijuana industry are also part of the mix when economists release the state's revenue projections Tuesday.

The projections of the state's tax receipts will have major implications on how much money schools will get and whether lawmakers will be able to go ahead with various reforms, including funding for English-language learners, teacher evaluations and restoring recession-era budget cuts.

Lawmakers will debate and vote on the budget next month.
